Discovered the Riverside Resort on our vacation to the area in Sept. 2013 after my husband went fishing with a guide associated with the resort. The location of this resort can't be beat! Decided we needed another get away to Homosassa and knew the Riverside Resort is where we wanted to stay! The manatee excursion is a must, this is a once in a life time experience!! Our captain "Jack" was amazing, he explained how to interact with the manatees and pointed out all the other wildlife the area has to offer. All kinds of activities to do at this resort.
The Crab House restaurant was good, the evening we were there the special was Shrimp & Grits...it wasn't the Charleston, SC variety, but was very good. If you like a fruity adult drink the "Monkey Juice" is to die for! We enjoyed sitting on the docks and watching the boats come in. The suites were clean and having a balcony to sit on after a long day was very relaxing. Only bad thing I will say is that if you are on the 1st floor and their are guest above you, it is very loud. The walls are very thin. But other than that I would stay here again.
Wasn't expecting much of the Homosassa Springs State Park, but I'd have to say this is another do not miss. What a wonderful park, the fishbowl is one of the most incredible sights I've ever seen!!

Room Tip: If you're getting a "suite" ask for one close to the docks and request the 2nd floor.

The hotel has a motel feel, rooms are nothing special, but the restaurant was great (really nice service), the hotel staff are super nice, and the view from the restaurant area onto the river is gorgeous. We absolutely loved our riverboat tour with Captain Gerry - we chose not to swim with manatees (thought we'd let them be), but saw so many of them as well as a million other animals! Really such a treat, loved every minute of it. One note, the bar seemed like so much fun and we wanted to have a couple drinks there, but the entertainer said something to the crowd after a Toby Keith song that we thought was a tad not cool & represented the hotel poorly Just our 2 cents.

Room Tip: Maybe the riverfront rooms are nicer?

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here for two nights and would have liked to stay longer. Our suite (110) offered a full kitchen, was very clean, comfortable and the balcony offered a wonderful view of the river.
Dinner at the Crab House which is on the property was terrific and if you are lucky you will get Tania as a waitress. As others have said, there is lots to do there but for those who want to just rest and relax it is a perfect spot for this as well. The Homosassa Springs State Park is just down the road. Visit here. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: I think that suites 109 & 110 are the best there.

The accommodations were very nice. The suite with kitchen and bedroom was clean and in good repair (not perfect, but good). This time of year is great. The resort is not busy. We rented a boat and saw many manatees since they travel up the river this time of year. The Bait and Tackle staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: Look on Groupon

If you're going to stay at the Riverside Resort you'll definitely need more than a day to fit in everything there is to do. I was able to take my first air boat ride while staying there and needless to say the river and wildlife are truly amazing. The marina offers river tours, dinner cruises and manatee swims, which I'll have to fit into my next stay. The restaurant has such a diverse menu you can get anything from a burger, steak or pasta along with a plethora of seafood choices and very reasonable drink prices to boot.

We stayed this past weekend at the Riverside. The Hotel is very friendly and clean. The location is great and in the middle of everything Homosassa. The area is pretty quaint with good food and good entertainment and good prices. I would highly recommend this place for a get-a-way.

On Wednesdays they have a steak special. Cooked outdoors on grills. Vey good and very reasonable. We spend our winters in Homosassa. Can't wait to get back down to so we can go there. Their upstairs bar/dining room has a great view of the river and monkey island.
